    The root reason for worrying about weight

    Why do you care about your weight? I am not sure if I care about others' opinions that much, but I automatically assess people in part based on their weight. Even though it seems to me that some of my friends deliberately diet. For me I think it may have something to do with status. It is...

    I always feel like my brother is out to get me

    I always feel like my younger brother is out to get me. He makes fun of me because I believe in the benefits of the raw food diet. I have not been eating a raw food diet, but occasionally I will have a salad or a fruit. Just now, I felt like he was laughing at me. What do I do about this...
